Guess what Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh have added to their lists of things they will do post pandemic? An "unforgettable reunion at Jalsa." In case you are wondering what we are talking about, here's what happened. On Thursday, Riteish re-tweeted a fan's post celebrating 39 years of Amitabh Bachchan's 1981 film Yaarana. The post featured a photo from Big B's "Unforgettable Tour," in which he can be seen dancing with son Abhishek, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Preity Zinta and Riteish Deshmukh at a concert in Trinidad. Singers Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani also performed at the aforementioned show during the tour in Trinidad.
Re-tweeting the photo, Riteish wrote: "Truly Unforgettable #39YearsOfYaarana #SaaraZamana tribute to Amitabh Bachchan Sir, with Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Vahini, Preity Zinta, do not miss the bulb waala jacket." Reacting to his tweet, Abhishek Bachchan wrote: "What fun we had," to which Riteish replied: "Let's do an unforgettable (reunion) night at Jalsa - Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani - I still remember my steps."
